Why should you exfoliate?
Exfoliating is an important part of your skincare routine. It draws out excess oils, helping to prevent acne, brightens your skin’s appearance by clearing out dry, flaky skin cells, and fights aging by boosting collagen production. By doing this it makes your serums and face creams absorb better.
Why is our Exfoliating Manuka Mask so unique? It’s made with a variety of natural ingredients including Manuka 20+, hemp seed oil and blueberry and cranberry seeds.
The manuka flower blooms for just two to six weeks a year, only in New Zealand. Manuka 20+ honey is unique in its medicinal properties. It is rated by the Unique Manuka Factor, (UMF) which ranges from 5+ to the highest, 20+. The higher UMF number indicates a more scarce crop yield, darker color, more benefits and higher levels of methylglyoxal. Manuka is known for its aid in digestive and immune health and it’s antibacterial benefits, which are derived from the methylglyoxal.
Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp seed oil seems to be in everything right now, but what does it actually do to help you and your skin? It’s a non-comedogenic (doesn’t clog pores) and inflammation reducer, including omegas three, six and nine. Hemp seed oil also aids in your skin’s oil regulation, which is beneficial acne prone skin. Don’t get this oil confused with CBD, which comes from a different part of the hemp plant.
Blueberry and Cranberry Seeds
Natural ingredients make products so much more interesting to use, and to look at. This mask includes blueberry and cranberry seeds, which act as the exfoliator, leaving you feeling soft and smooth.
